    This sort of competition is a great way to learn, because of the focus you'll need. Once you can see the concept of the picture in your head, the rest is just joining all the dots! Good luck.

    Thanks Moochie for the comments,

    Concept
    well, the Idea is to build a pumpkin farm filled with jaco-o-lanterns and a comic character (probably a mouse) stands frightened to see a halloween cat inside a pumpkin. The BG may have some creepy looking houses and a witch flying in a broom..and trees..etc all sculpted in ZBrush and composited in Max. More objects will be added later.

    & this is my first concept, and may have some changes later..

    Now off to the Z

    Ho man! Sounds like your gonna need loads of models for this one!

    I can picture it in my head and I think it'll be cool to come across a field full of pumpkins like that, especially if they all have different expressions on them.

    Still, I have been warned about taking on too much in one go, especially seeing as you and me are new to ZBrush. Hope you don't mind me asking but are you comfortable with so many models to make?

    If so then I look forward to seeing this one! If it comes out like I imagine it in my head then I'll have it as my desktop wallpaper one Halloween.

    dustbin1_uk: glad to know u like my concept, hope everything work fine as Im a beginner, & yes, its gonna need lot of models here, I doubt my low end pc can handle all. Im planning to sculpt every single objects separately and then composite them all..as Im not very used to the workflow.

    Ah! I miss read this before! I missed the essential bit out with the cat comming out of the pumkin. LOL

    Now I get it, I can't wait to see it come to life.

    using a mouse huh? well I'd be inclined to go get a budget tablet. You can pick up really cheap ones from most PC stores. When you win you can then donate it to another new artist!

    The new wacom bamboo is under £30 (here in the UK) and our local supermarket sells Trust Graphics Tablets A6 size (small but usable) for less than £20.

    I don't know what country your from, but I'm sure they will have similar there!

    As for winning, your going to do better than me with concept drawings like that! WITH A MOUSE! (both kinds)

    Very nice start! As for the pumpkin, you could always sculpt the main shape then mask out the areas for the eyes and mouth. Once masked, inverse the mask and use the extract tool (under subtools). You may need to adjust the thickness. This will make a new mesh with the eyes and mouth cut out.

    Hope this helps! Keep up the great work!
